“American Pie” Apron

As a member of the CRESCENDOh Design Team, I get the opportunity to play with stamps and kits in exchange for sharing the projects I create – such fun!  I recently had the pleasure of making an apron from an Apron of My Eye kit (American Pie), and love the results.  I hadn’t sewn since making a pillow in home economics when I was in the 7th grade, but took this kit along to a first sewing lesson and was able to complete the apron with guidance from my sewing teacher – fellow Design Team member Cynthia Shaffer.  I’d planned out my design before heading over, and just needed to do the actual sewing.

I love this apron kit for multiple reasons.  First of all, the fabrics included in each kit are a bit different, so no two aprons will ever be exactly alike.  Second, I was able to lay out the apron’s design myself so it’s perfectly suited to me.  For example, I’m a big fan of symmetry; I was able to make my apron beautifully symmetrical.  I also opted not to include a pocket, but did include a decorative four-square panel front and center.  And finally, because this project doesn’t require complete precision and is supposed to be a bit more funky it’s well suited to multiple skill levels.

Virtually everything I needed was included in the kit.  All I pulled from my personal stash was thread and five buttons (though three buttons were included in the kit).  Nice!  I had ten fabric squares and a few bits of trim left over – because I opted not to include them in my design – and have tucked them into my stash of art supplies for future use.  I look forward to wearing this darling apron, though it’s almost too cute to use!

I hope you have a great day, and a wonderful weekend!

Warm regards,
